This comedy-tinged relationship drama finds middle-class Birmingham couple Nick and Meg (Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan) taking the Eurostar to Paris in order to revisit the haunts of their honeymoon, 30 years previously. Appalled by the state of their hotel, Meg insists they move somewhere much more upmarket, even though they clearly can't afford it. After many turbulent years, their marriage is finally on the rocks, but a chance reunion with Nick's urbane college friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum) offers a momentary distraction when he invites the pair to an arty dinner party. Roger Michell's film contains frequent nods to the French
(notably Jean-Luc Godard's Bande à Part), while Hanif Kureishi's screenplay may be a trifle bookish and spiky for some tastes. The performances are terrific, though, especially Duncan as the waspish, unfathomable Meg, while Goldblum steals every scene as the upholder of all the ideals that the downtrodden Nick has long since abandoned.
A couple decide to celebrate their 30th anniversary in Paris, where they spent their honeymoon, in the hope that returning to the site of happier times will revive the failing relationship. The holiday leads to an encounter with a prosperous old friend, who invites them to a dinner party that changes their outlook on life. Romantic comedy drama, starring Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan and Jeff Goldblum.
